A fun slab route. I placed a black (smallest) Alien about halfway up. The route could use more cleaning; bring a wire brush if you're headed up here.

You can find some fun climbing on these obscuro crags. We really enjoyed this route. I personally didn't see the need to place any gear. The bolts seemed to protect everything pretty well.

Ken, Ray & I added a bolt a few months ago to replace the blind smallest Alien placement. I have fixed the route description.

This route presently is pretty dirty. It might merit a star if it got a good brushing.
